“We can do nothing without Him” by John Newton

“We are never more safe, never have more reason to expect the Lord’s help, than when we are most sensible that we can do nothing without Him.”

–John Newton, The Works of John Newton, Volume 2 (London: Hamilton, Adams & Co., 1824), 146. As quoted in Tony Reinke, Newton on the Christian Life: To Live Is Christ (Wheaton: Crossway, 2015), 234.
